If you’ve been engaged, you know that while it can be a tremendously exciting season, there is no stressor quite like finding the perfect wedding venue. Between the afternoons spent sifting through magazines and the mornings spent scanning Pinterest and Instagram for all the best ideas, finding a venue and planning a wedding can turn into a full-time job. But fear not, future brides and grooms! We just cut your work in half. Gone are the days of monotonous searching, because we’re introducing the most perfect venue in all of Texas Hill Country.
Rough Creek Lodge and Resort comes complete with 11,000 acres of ranch land, a little white chapel on a hill, cascading trees, lakeside views, and five-star accommodations for all of your guests. Oh yes, this kind of wedding day bliss actually does exist. Here are 8 reasons why this picturesque Hill Country Ranch is the perfect place to say, “I Do”.
You Can Reserve The Entire Property For Ultimate Privacy
You don’t have to reserve the whole lodge and resort to experience all that it has to offer, but if you can, you should. When you elect to sign an exclusive contract at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort, you and your guests will have access to the whole resort and all of its amenities, uninterrupted.
We put all other unrelated business on hold for a couple of days so that our full staff can give you and your guests our undivided attention all weekend long. Whether you want ultimate privacy or just unapparelled service, the exclusivity of reserving the property will be something you and your guests will remember for a lifetime. Besides, a custom key-card to a five-star room makes for a pretty great wedding favor.
You Have Full Access to All of Rough Creeks Activities
If you decide you only want to reserve part of the resort for your big day, you will still have full access to all of the activities we have on-site at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort. From the spa and the pool to the zipline and the guided horseback riding tours, you and your guests can experience it all.
The best part? While the wedding party prepares for their walk down the aisle, your friends and family will have plenty to do. By the time you see them at the reception, they’ll have had a weekend full of memorable moments to share with you (and to thank you for!) For our full list of resort activities, click here.
You Can Choose Between 8 Different Venues for a Customized Ceremony and Reception Experience
While our idyllic white wedding chapel is an iconic and traditional option for your ceremony space, the venue options are endless and can be tailored to your perfect preference. Our sprawling lawn behind the main lodge is located on Mallard Lake and is a great option for couples who want to get married outdoors, while our main dining room and terrace are the perfect space to accommodate a night of delicious food and dancing under the stars. No matter your style, we’ll work with you to create a space that makes your wildest dreams come true, from the moment you get engaged to the moment you say “I do”.
You Can Comfortably Host 250 Of Your Closest Friends and Family
The hardest part about planning a party is cutting down the guest list, but now you don’t have to! We like to make sure your friends and family from near and far can join you on your special day, so we’ve designed our property to accommodate 250 guests. Regardless of whether your guests are staying on-site or leaving after the reception, there is plenty of space for a grand celebration, no matter where you choose to host it.
You Work With The On-Site Five-Star Gourmet Chef to Create a Personalized Menu
Speaking of a grand celebration, when you book a wedding at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort, you will work with our award-winning chef to design a custom menu. The menu is guaranteed to keep your guests satisfied for the evening and raving about your wedding food for years to come.
Chef Gerard Thompson has devoted his life to gourmet cooking and creates gastronomical masterpieces with guests’ preferences in mind. Whether you want to base your menu around fresh meats cured-in house, or around your undying love for seafood (which is flown in fresh daily), our Chef and his team will be ready to make your gourmet dreams come true.
You Have Full Access to the On-site Wedding Coordinator and Her Team
We know that the most important part of your wedding is actually getting to enjoy it, so we like to ensure that from the moment you get engaged, someone is there to help you make your wedding happen. Not only will you be able to work with our full staff, but your wedding at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort also comes with a full-service wedding coordinator and her team! They have a heart for helping brides and grooms make their dreams come true, and we love to watch them do it!
You Can Work With The Best Vendors in The DFW Area
One of the sweetest parts about having a wedding at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort is that the remote, hill country venue is secluded, making your special day feel like a sweet escape. But that doesn’t mean Texas’s best wedding vendors are out of reach. We have a preferred list of vendors who are willing to commute in from DFW to help make your wedding day everything you hope it will be. From florists to event rentals and everything in between, you have access to a huge inventory of different styles and different pieces that will make your wedding day uniquely perfect for you.
You Can Customize a Fireworks Show To Celebrate Your Love
Last, but certainly not least, you can celebrate your nuptials with your very own personalized fireworks show. At Rough Creek Lodge and Resort, we believe that nothing says “life-long happiness” like a night full of shining lights over the lake. It’s a great end to a day full of celebration and rejoicing, and the only proper way to kick-off your long and happy marriage.
Whatever you hope your wedding will be, Rough Creek Lodge and Resort is prepared to make it a charming, personal, once-in-a-lifetime experience for every attendee.
